I'm neglecting this blog like a husband with a gambling addiction and a girlfriend on the side neglects his wife. I do like to gamble but I've had neither the time or money for such. However, I do have another writing outlet as most of y'all know and she has been taking nearly all of my creative juices.
But I'm proud to say things are progressing nicely on Plundered Booty. I have added an entirely new character to the mix and he is adding a good bit of punch and comedic aid to that sagging middle of the novel. Matter of fact once I'm finished with Plundered Booty I just may write an entire novel around this former televangelist turned day time talk show host. Think Jerry Springer meets Benny Hinn. Add in my first person narrator Hank, a middle aged car salesman with a heart of gold, but a lifelong pirate fetish, a six pack of sexual deviants, one nymphomaniac, a bitchy diet crazed wife, and an accountant with a secret crush and you have the cast of characters. Oh I forgot the reformed hooker that is the reason the preacher is a former televangelist.
In other news, this blog is now available on Kindle. For a mere 99 cents a month you can have it sent directly to your Kindle if you so choose. Click here to order, or of course you can continue to read right here for absolutely nothing. Also if any of y'all have time stop by the Amazon order page and write up a review of One Word, One Rung, One Day so others will have a clue what this blog is about.
Next week, I'm going to devote the blog to actual talk about the craft of writing. (With the exception of My Town Monday) It's been a while since I've done much of that. Since I consider my writing to be character driven and I feel that creating characters is my strong suit, next week will all be about creating characters. I know not all of you are writers, but most of you are readers if nothing else and I hope to keeps the posts entertaining enough that the non writers will get something out of them as well.
I hope to do three separate posts on characterization, beginning Tuesday.
But for now, it's Booty time.
